Language Laboratory

The Dept. of English houses a full-fledged Language Laboratory. The lab installed Globarena Technologies Pvt Ltd., Hyderabad Software which offers a variety of functions such as Recording, High Speed Copying, Test Preparation, Intercom, Student Monitoring, Teacher/Student Call, Group Conferencing, etc. The main console is connected to 11 listening booths which have been specially designed for student-teacher interaction, and greater concentration for language learning. The lab also has a large number of cassettes and books for all levels, beginners, intermediate and advanced. The lab is used by students belonging to the B.Sc., B.C.A Course as well as by the P.G. batches every semester.
The Language Laboratory is used for language tutorials. Lessons and exercises are recorded on a weekly basis so that the students are exposed to a variety of listening and speaking drills. This especially benefits students who are deficient in English and also aims at confidence-building for interviews and competitive examinations. The Language Laboratory sessions also include word games, quizzes, extemporary speaking, debates, skits etc. These sessions are complemented by online learning sessions which take place in the Multi-Purpose Computer Lab.

We also introduced many projects to improve their communicative skills. A workbook has been prescribed.
We have introduced a book for their personality development and career planning. Hence we have introduced a Book on   ‘Career Planning and Personality Development’.

We do not follow the traditional teaching method that is lecture method. Instead students are given more opportunity to read, write and speak in the class rooms. Before starting a lesson, a pre-reading question will be put to the students to generate discussion in the class room. Seminars are conducted regularly. Various methods are employed in assessing the students throughout the semester. Internal assessment tests are conducted as per the schedule. Home assignments are given regularly, seminars are conducted in the class rooms and debates and group discussions are held in order to encourage the students. Evaluation is based on all these events.
